Sugar Aunts: 3 Rainbow Sensory Bins

3 Rainbow Sensory Bins

We've been playing with a rainbow theme alllll week around here.  These are three rainbow sensory bins that we have been exploring.
 


Any time that I pull out the corn bin, everyone gets very excited.  I added ribbons in different colors and some "gold coins" (aka yellow Connect Four game pieces!)
 
 
Another little sensory bin that we've been playing with is a simple bowl of these Fuse 'M Beads.

 
I added a couple of pairs of tweezers and an ice cube tray and let them go at it!
This was a fun fine motor activity, but mostly they just loved running their hands through the beads.
 

 
Baby Girl loved exploring these little beads.
((These are really little, so if you play with these...or any little parts...keep an eye on your little ones if they tend to put things in their mouths.  Baby Girl does pretty well and won't put things like this in her mouth.))


 
This last sensory bin used the Fuse 'M Beads again.  The next day, I put the beads and some cotton balls (clouds) into a big ol' bowl and added a melon baller and kitchen tongs. 
 
 
More fine motor skills and sensory play combined into one colorful activity!
 


We hope you get some good ideas from these sensory bins.  have you done any fun sensory bins recently?
